The Castle Doctrine, Stand Your Ground and Make My Day Laws are a legal rule under which a person protecting his or her property (such as home or place of business) may stand his or her ground (instead of retreating) and apply deadly force against an intruder (or an invited guest) who intends to commit an armed robbery and/or inflict serious bodily harm upon the person or upon those in the property. Based on the 'a man's home is his castle' principle of equity. However, when someone misuses these laws isn't the incident really murder, as in the case of Trayvon Martin.
